Fisher/Unitech is a provider of IT solutions to the manufacturing sector, and they specialize in software and hardware solutions aimed at realizing productivity gains in industrial design, computer-aided design, and physical prototyping among a variety of areas. They say an award-winning technical team offers training options in SolidWorks and a consulting team delivers professional services for design automation and data management.
Now the company, a reseller of 3D printing and engineering software and services, says they’re expanding their offerings into the hobbyist 3D printing market by adding the MakerBot line to their product portfolio.
Fisher/Unitech says the announcement is a logical extension of their portfolio as the company has served as one of the top Stratasys professional 3D printing resellers worldwide for the last 18 years.
Nick Licari, the 3D Printing Services Manager at Fisher/Unitech, says this addition of MakerBot products greatly expands the types of individuals his company can assist.
“This partnership allows Fisher Unitech to bring our team’s unparalleled knowledge, experience and expertise in additive manufacturing to MakerBot’s large and rapidly growing customer base. Teaming with MakerBot allows us to truly offer a 3d printing solution for everyone… hobbyist, students, entrepreneurs, small businesses and fortune 500 companies alike will be able to reap the benefits of 3d printing.” Licari says.
Licari says the MakerBot lineup of desktop accessible 3D printers which utilize FDM technology provides customers excellent portability and ease of use. He says Fisher/Unitech will be offering the entire line of MakerBot 3D printers themselves and PLA filaments.
The company is also beginning an extensive renovation of its training facilities, developing a new website and launching a community outreach program.
Natalia Kostylev, a marketing specialist at Fisher/Unitech, says the company was named the leading Stratasys reseller in North America for 2010, and as Stratasys partners for the last 15 years, the company is an expert in the production of end-use parts with the Dimension 3D printer and Fortus 3D Production equipment. She adds that over the last 18 years, the company has grown to support 8,000 customers – and more than 15,000 users – throughout the Midwest and New England states. The company boasts 14 locations with full classroom facilities which support users in 16 states.
